Can I salvage my chili?

I have been thinking about chili lately and today I grabbed some things from the fridge and made one - however, there was no chili powder! Instead of going to the store, I threw in a dry mix of "Old Mexican Spice Mix" that someone gave me, the kind that you mix together with sour cream and mayo for a dip. I love spicy food, but this was way too hot for me - my SO is not crazy about hot spice at all - other than go to the store and buy ingredients for another pot of chili sans any seasoning at all and mixing them together, does anyone have any ideas for salvaging my recipe? It is my fault entirely but I have just finished my hour on the treadmill and I don't feel like making a grocery run.
